Editing the shipping time for Shopify pre-orders


With PreProduct listings there are two potential types of ‘shipping time’ in listings:


  • A number of days, which automatically counts down each 24 hours
  • A static statement


Through the PreProduct product dashboard, you can alter this ‘shipping time’, as well as convert from one type to the other type.


To alter the shipping time go to the Dashboard and click on the specific product you are wanting to alter.  Then towards the left hand-side you will see the current shipping statement, click on this.





Then if you want to change the number of shipping days, either slide the bar to the left or right and click save. 





If you are wanting to add or edit a static statement instead, tick the box for ‘I don’t want to display an exact day’, and add the statement, ensure you click save.





PreProduct will try and parse the text you enter to give Shopify an exact date (which it requires for pre-order purchase options). This is shown in green above. If the parse fails, you can choose your own date to give to Shopify.



There is also an option to compose an email update to let current pre-order customers know about the change in shipping time.
